, the oregon shopping mall, and now we saw them in an elementary school. they're capable of firing if you have a magazine of 30, 30 bullets in a few seconds or even 100 in less than a minute. and, you know, this, make no bones about this, larry. the guy that went up to that school, adam lanza, he had enough bullets, enough magazines to eliminate the entire school. >> why do we need that? this is a question i have. i mean, i would get rid of the semiautomatic or narrow it down to extremely, extremely narrow stuff. but, again, why do we need these huge magazines? why do we need 100 bullets that sort of thing? why do hunters need that? >> why would a hunter need to have 100 magazine? what do they want to do? take a deer and destroy it completely? is that the sport? is that the fun? i thought hunting was about having one shot, if you're hunting for animals and taking that shot and experiencing your skill as a huntsman. there's no skill in blazing a deer with 100 bullets. there is no sensible reason why you need to have these high-capacity magazines other than for criminals who want to obl
